Draft Day Memories 2008 – Part 1

Players never forget the day they were drafted, and they can remember various moments from that once-in-a-lifetime day, memories that sharpen as a new NFL Draft approaches each year.

Packers.com caught up with all the members of Green Bay’s 2008 draft class to share what they remember most from their draft day one year ago.

Excerpts of those thoughts will be presented in a two-part series. The first part features the players drafted in the first three rounds, four of the team’s nine selections in 2008. The first two rounds took place on Saturday, April 26, and the following day began with the third round.More

Persistence Pays Off For Medallion Hunters

The Packers Draft Party Medallion remained hidden for nine days, but less than 12 hours before the 10th and final clue would have pointed the hundreds of seekers to its specific location, the Goodacre family found it.

Mark and Tiffany Goodacre, along with their three children and two nephews, had been driving north to Green Bay from Neenah every day for about a week. Having researched each daily clue on the internet and getting closer and closer to pinpointing the hiding spot, they finally uncovered the three-inch gold-colored medallion at around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday night underneath a pine tree in De Pere’s Voyageur Park.

“It was neat and it was good we could get the whole family involved,” Mark said. “The kids said they were on a treasure hunt.” – More

Draft Board Comes Into Focus In Final Week

It’s a phrase that will be heard often this week, and particularly this weekend, in talking about the NFL Draft, and it’s a philosophy General Manager Ted Thompson and his personnel staff with the Green Bay Packers follow — “staying true to the board.”

The “board” is the draft board, and Thompson shed a little light during his pre-draft press conference on Monday about how that board is constructed and then followed during the draft.

The board is essentially all the draft-eligible players’ names covering one entire wall of the team’s draft room, which resides on the third floor of the Lambeau Field Atrium, the same floor as the offices of the personnel and coaching staffs. It’s probably more accurately termed a “grid” with both vertical and horizontal components. – More
